Jingili Long Day Care​

About ​​our daycare

Jingili Kindergarten is a 61 place long day care centre, positioned 'off campus' on Jingili Terrace, co-located with Jingili Preschool. We provide opportunities for children aged 6 months to 5 years, to participate in a wonderfully unique environment, offering a variety of indoor and outdoor activities on a daily basis. We provide nutritious meals throughout the day, promoting the health and wellbeing of all children in our care. We operate from 7:00am through to 6:00pm, Monday to Friday.

We embrace the National Quality framework, and ensure that this is reflected throughout our Centre, as we strive to continually offer high quality care and education. Our programs reflect the principles, practices and learning outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework, where children’s interests and strengths are used to guide the program, and promote further learning.

Our educ​​ators

All employees at YMCA have participated in the Safeguarding Children program; have undergone Working with Children, and Police checks. They have a very good understanding of their obligations around child protection, and keeping children safe. Our educators are highly committed, and all hold, or are working towards, qualifications in the early childhood care and education profession. Our educators’ ongoing professional development is paramount to our service, and is always promoted and supported by the YMCA.

Govern​​​m​​​ent Support

Our services are approved by the Federal Government, and are therefore subsidised through the Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate schemes, helping families with the cost of care.
